Dr. Dan, as his patients call him, has been a periodontist for over four decades.
He divides his career into two periods: before and after the laser coupled with the dynamics of ancestral nutrition. The laser-based LANAP® protocol and the importance of ancestral nutrition, he believes, are revolutionizing the treatment of gum disease: “LANAP is reengineering how I treat periodontal disease. There is no cutting with a scalpel blade and no stitches. And the realization that evolutionary nutrition is the basis for total body health is mind boggling.”.
His G.U.M. Protocol, based on evolutionary nutrition, assists patients in eliminating unhealthy lifestyle routines and poor food choices by replacing them with healthy ones. The body needs nutrient-dense foods and healthy gut bacteria to create amazing results. Poor nutrition and unhealthy gut bacteria lead to various medical and dental diseases and imbalances.
Dr. Danenberg acknowledges that traditional gum surgery could achieve results that were “okay, but never terrific. After 35 years, I now am getting much better results with much less discomfort for my patients”.
LANAP takes far less time, with little or no pain, and the patient can often return to work the next day. “And by incorporating the principles of evolutionary nutrition, I am helping patients heal and strengthen their entire bodies”.
Dr. Dan’s passion for periodontics in general—and for the LANAP protocol combined with his emphasis on evolutionary nutrition in particular—is palpable. He gives seminars regarding the cutting-edge concepts of nutrition and laser treatment to the general public and is happy to spread the word among his fellow professionals.
He has been a member of many dental and periodontal organizations, including the American Academy of Periodontology and the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. Currently he enjoys Life Membership in the American Dental Association.
Dr. Alvin Danenberg received his dental degree from the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery in 1972, and his Specialty Certificate in Periodontics from the University of Maryland, School of Graduate Dentistry in 1974. The following two years he was Chief of Periodontics at Charleston Air Force Base, and later had periodontal practices in Charleston and Columbia, South Carolina.
Along with his active practice, he wrote and published from January 1990 through December 2001 “The Personal Report” newsletter, which was mailed quarterly to every periodontist in the United States. He joined Beaufort Family Dentistry in South Carolina in 2009 and now sees patients at Bluffton Center for Dentistry. Dr. Danenberg received advanced training in evolutionary nutrition from the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health as well as The Center for Mind-Body Medicine.
He received his CFMP (Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner) designation from Functional Medicine University in June 2014, and the Primal Health Coach Certification in September 2014. In 2015, he was appointed to the faculty of the College of Integrative Medicine and created its integrative periodontal teaching module.
Then, in April 2017, he earned the designation of “ADAPT Trained Health Professional from Kresser Institute, the only functional medicine and evolutionary health training company”. He also provides a unique opportunity for anyone to discuss their nutrition and periodontal questions with him live online at DrDanenberg.com. His new book is “Crazy-Good LIVING!”.
He and his wife Sue have been married since 1969 and have two children and three grandchildren.
He studied aerospace medicine at the academy of military medicine in Saint Petersburg, this allowed him to attend a lot of lectures on physiology and space biology. Later he completed the medical studies in Hungary. During this period, he worked as an assistant in biochemical, viral serology and genetic labs, as well as working on ambulances. So, he Started his medical career, then moved to the intensive care unit for 5 years.
After that, he was hired by a pharmaceutical company to work as a medical consultant, marketing and sales manager. This last experienced allowed him to learn how the pharmaceutical industry operates, how the firms can control medical practice and post graduates’ apprenticeship.
After others 5 years, he switched back to the medical profession, working as an internist. He started his private practice based on food interventions in 2010.
The PaleoMedicina Hungary, rehabilitation center, of which he is chief medical director, was founded in 2013. At first, treatments were based only on the most popular paleo principles. Later on, dr. Zsofia Clemens joined the team and started using the paleo-ketogenic diet, which has become their exclusive approach.
Since 2013 he has been involved in research on the relationship between biological membranes and chronic diseases. The application of the PEG400 test to measure intestinal permeability was introduced in their laboratory.
Until now, this is the only clinically measurable marker of membrane function and is used in their therapeutic interventions and, in their study project, there is an investigation of the correlation between the intestinal permeability and that of the other membranes of the body in oncological and autoimmune disorders.
A lifetime passion for nutrition and sports were the key factors for developing a deep interest for all the theorical aspects behind nutrition and fitness.
His work focuses on optimizing training with the intent of building a strong physical structure to improve the general personal health, which he noticed deteriorate significantly during the last phase of adolescence.
After high school, he wanted to become a personal trainer, so he joined the Norwegian School of Sport Sciences. Back then however, for quite some time he was still obsessed with his original idea of becoming a trainer, investing most of his time and efforts in planning training sessions, studying physiology… ext.
Throughout the years He gradually built various implementation strategies. He has a degree in public nutrition and a phD in clinical nutrition.
He still working as a coach, personal trainer and nutrition consultant but his main occupation nowadays consists in writing scientific articles for Paleo magazine, the first and only magazine entirely dedicated to Evolutionary Medicine and Nutrition Movement in the USA.
Dr. Boros is currently Professor of Pediatrics at UCLA and Co-Director of the Stable Isotope Research Laboratory at the Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute (LABIOMED) at the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center with a primary focus on the study of cell metabolism using a specially designed 13C glucose tracer and mass spectroscopy.
Born and educated in Hungary, Dr. Boros’ medical background includes three years of gastroenterology and pancreatology, focusing on chronic pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer. He spent two years as a visiting scholar in Essen, Germany, studying various animal models of chronic pancreatitis. In 1990 he moved to Columbus, Ohio, where he joined Drs’ history lab. Zollinger and Ellison, who described the hormonal regulatory mechanisms involved in pancreatic cancer growth with a primary emphasis on diagnostics and treatment.
In 1995 he became the principal investigator for clinically applying stable isotope technologies to investigate the growth of diabetes and cancer in vitro and in animal models at UCLA. He is an expert in the use of metabolic profiling and mitochondrial nanomechanics to further understand particularly aggressive tumors.
Dr. Boros also participates in research projects aimed at the metabolic disorders of the population, such as diabetes and obesity, and is involved in the discovery of the basic mechanisms of rare metabolic disorders deriving from genetic mutations affecting the transport of vitamins. Dr. Boros is an internationally recognized expert on the biochemistry of metabolic water and kinetic isotopic effects mediated by deuterium in health and disease.
Dr. Boros is the recipient of the C. Williams Hall Outstanding Publishing Award from the United States Academy of Surgical Research (1997), the Richard E. Weitzman Memorial Research Award from the University of California (2001), Clinical research Recognition by the General Clinical Research Center at the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center (2004), the Public Health Impact Investigator Award of the United States Food and Drug Administration (2011) and received the Best Publication award by the Metabolomics Society and Springer Nature publisher (2014).
Israeli researcher with an evolutionary nutrition expert and doctoral candidate at the archeology department of University of Tel Aviv, he is looking for the connection between human evolution and nutrition.
Since then he has been studying relations between human evolution and nutrition. Throughout the years he published some significant articles concerning the nutrition of Homo Sapiens and Neanderthalensis.
He graduated in economy from the Hebrew University and a master’s degree from the European School of Business Administration in Fontainebleau, France. He held important positions in various companies, both in Israel and abroad and is currently research on the relationship between nutrition and evolution at the Department of Archeology at the University of Tel Aviv.
At the age of 52 he decided to retire from work, since then he has been attending courses of prehistoric archeology, creative writing, literature, philosophy and studies on East asia.
Some years ago, he wrote “The Book of Life for Workers” (in Hebrew) that focuses his ideas and life experiences on a model as close as possible to our genetic-evolutionary background as a way to achieve health, happiness and deep satisfaction.
Former astrophysicist turned software entrepreneur.
He started having health problems around the age of 30, partly because of the consequences of a long cycle of antibiotics accompanied by poor diet (mainly bread, cheese and Coca-Cola). Developing health problems in my 30s, partly due consequences of a long course of antibiotics accompanied by a bad diet (mainly bread, cheese, and Coca-Cola). These health problems got worse every year and threatened to become disabling.
He discovered the Paleo diet in 2005 and this fixed some problems but caused some new ones, mainly (as I realized over the next year) because it introduced some nutrient deficiencies. Together with his wife Shou-Ching, they spent the next 5 years studying how to optimize nutrition in a natural diet with whole foods. Which led to the development of the Perfect Health Diet.
By now this sector has become a job for him. With his wife they engage in independent research. Paul and Shou-Ching believe that the evolutionary food approach is the healthiest of all popular diets. They are trying to demonstrate its value to the world in a striking way. Some projects supported by them:
- propose the Perfect Health Retrats, 1-2 weeks dedicated to health, in a luxury beach resort in North Carolina
- offer participants free health-courses before and after the holidays, asking only for feedback on their health results in return
They want to show that an ancestral diet and lifestyle can cure most diseases and improve general health, easy weight-loss and improved mood and energy.

Trevor Connor is Dr. Loren Cordain’s graduate student at Colorado State University. His research with Dr. Cordain has focused on the effects of a Paleo style diet on autoimmune conditions.
Their pilot study included close to 60 volunteers with diverse conditions ranging from Crohn’s Disease, to Multiple Sclerosis to Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. So far the results have been very promising, including all eight Crohn’s subjects going into remission on the Paleo Diet.
Trevor started working with Dr. Cordain in 2010, soon after retiring as a Professional Cyclist. At 38, he felt it was time to hang up the bike. Trevor had studied traditional sports nutrition for over a decade and was admittedly very reluctant to accept the Paleo Diet. But after experimenting with the diet himself, Trevor was able to return to the Pro Peloton at 40, getting Top Five’s in several races and establishing himself as the top ranked 40+ rider in the country for several years running.
Trevor now writes the Coaching Section of the international cycling magazine Velo and manages the semi-Professional cycling team Team Rio Grande who’s alumni include Teejay Van Gaarderen, a top five finisher at the Tour de France and multiple national champions.
Trevor is currently working on the funding to continue their research on the Paleo Diet and autoimmune disease focusing in particular on Crohn’s Disease. Also, thanks to the paleo diet, his wife managed to fulfill her lifetime dream of taking part in the Olympics (Rio 2016), managing to finish in the top 10 in the pole vault specialty despite her age of over 35.
